Another Catalog

This time it is from Huggins & Scott Auctions. It arrived in yesterday's mail. It, like the REA catalogs, is a joy to behold. It is different than the previous ones. Not better, not worse, just different.

Here's the breakdown...

H&S 2009 catalog
Dimensions: 10-7/8" x 8" x 3/8"
Weight: 1lb, 8.6 oz
Pages: 272
Lots: 1309
Average Lots per Page: 4.81

REA 2008 catalog
Dimensions: 11" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/4"
Weight: ~6lbs
Pages: 692
Lots: 1673
Average Lots per Page: 2.42

REA 2007 catalog
Dimensions: 11" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/4"
Weight: ~6lbs
Pages: 655
Lots: 1594
Average Lots per Page: 2.43

The REA catalogs appear to have more robust descriptions. Again, this isn't better or worse, just different.

I hope to look through the H&S catalog later this weekend and bid on something. Not in the hopes of winning, but by being an 'active' bidder, I will stay on their catalog mailing list for the next two years. I think that I've narrowed my choice of lots down to a few. Now to bid early and pray that someone else outbids me. Well, that's my wife's prayer.

Register bidding starts Sunday, January 18th, 2009 at 4:00pm, Eastern.
